Paradise Salon's staff expertly renders the services necessary to bolster their clients' looks. Hair treatments such as Brazilian blowouts and deep conditioning keep strands smooth and strong enough to twirl around fingers or flip over shoulders. Nail services groom hands and feet—vixen reds light up fingers like glow sticks light up a rave in a cave. The technicians can also use a Japanese solution to keep lashes curled to the ideal level, enabling flirtatious winks for up to six weeks.
Desert Sun Tanning's FormoStar body wraps radiate infrared heat onto the limbs and torso in order to boost metabolism and accelerate the burning of fat. During the 50-minute treatment, clients can adjust the body wrap's temperature to suit their levels of heat tolerance and pyromania. The heat from the wrap helps alleviate muscle pain, promotes calorie burning without muscle or lung fatigue, and stimulates the lymphatic system. The sweating that the treatment induces in users is also thought to exfoliate away dead skin cells.

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I meet a wide variety of wonderful people who come in looking forward to their treatment and who leave with relief on their faces. There is no better occupation in the world than bringing peace and relaxation to those who seek it.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We have a small store with all kinds of fun, eclectic items that are hand-picked for the only reason that they suit our fancy at the moment. We also provide lotions, oils, soaps, and items related to massage for purchase.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Many people work at their computer desks all day and forget to get up and stretch. I would estimate that most of the people who come in have very hunched up shoulders and necks because of the non-ergonomic positions they maintain at a desk during the workday. Remember to get up every 45 minutes to hour and stretch. Have a drink of water, and walk around if you can. It only takes 3 minutes and will help unscrunch you.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We offer many wellness therapies and we encourage our valued clients to try something new. Come in and relax, enjoy your time with us, and learn about other healing therapies besides massage, such as Reiki. It could open a whole other window of wellness for you.
Pauline of Pauline's NailSpa doesn't rest on her laurels. It's not enough that she owns her own nail salon outfitted with tasteful mahogany-toned walls and plush pedicure thrones, she also designs her own nail services. Pauline's proprietary silk-wrap nail process offers an eco-friendly alternative to traditional faux nails with 100% China silk and fiberglass resin that leave clients with long, sturdy, glossy nails. Clients can also opt for traditional, Shellac, or acrylic manicures, or they can settle into cushioned pedicure chairs that end in warm footbaths. In a separate room, aestheticians deliver results-focused, European-style facials that include deep cleanings, conditioning steams, and light massages to raise the spirits and bring the skin to a radiance that could earn its own office on the color wheel.
